HSN and Disney walk down the yellow brick road
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Multi-channel retailer HSNi will collaborate with Disney to create an exclusive collection of fashions, jewelry, beauty and home accessories based on Walt Disney Studios' film “Oz the Great and Powerful.”
To promote the collection and the film, HSN has developed a marketing campaign that includes a two-day live event viewable across all its platforms: TV, HSN.com and HSN mobile.
“Oz the Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. It opens in theaters nationwide on March 8 and is rated PG.
